A jury in King County, Washington, has awarded a Metro passenger $1.3 million for injuries he sustained when he slipped exiting a bus in October of 2006. In that incident Keith Knappett suffered permanent, severe leg injuries. He needs a cane to walk, and faces possible amputation. It was proved at trial that when portions of the bus stairs get wet, especially the bright yellow material on the stairs, they become very slick. Metro’s lawyers tried to prove that this was impossible, but the jury didn’t buy their argument. Lori H. Askell represented the Plaintiff in the case and did a very good job.
